Belfast dream pop trio Beauty Sleep announce Dublin Headline show Upstairs at Whelan’s.
Beauty Sleep have earned a stellar reputation for crafting vibrant synth- driven pop music thanks to previous single releases like ‘Until We See The Sun’ and ‘All In’. Their debut LP Be Kind is set for release on May 17th on Quiet Arch records. The captivating record showcases a young group clearly in love with the process of creating music together. Flush with golden vocal harmonies, dazzling
synths and earworm hooks, Be Kind is a huge step in Beauty Sleep’s blossoming career.
Beauty Sleep’s music is born of the friendship its three members share. The Belfast natives met first by chance at a mutual friend’s party. While chatting, Cheylene, Ryan and Aimee discovered a powerful shared creative bond. Overcome with the rush of inspiration only the prospect of a new project instils, the group decided to seize the moment and focus their energy into forming a new band. Enter the lush dream-pop Beauty Sleep makes today.
Their strong releases have been bolstered by the band’s high energy live performances, which the group view as another avenue for communal celebration of music and dance. Apart from regular gigs in their native Belfast, Beauty Sleep have recently graced stages at Electric Picnic, Other Voices, The Great Escape and supported the likes of All Tvvins and Pleasure Beach.
With the endless possibilities of the new year at hand Beauty Sleep have decided to release their long-awaited debut LP Be Kind on May 17th. The record will be released alongside their label Quiet Arch. The album pays homage to the tracks which have come before, opening with their debut single ‘The Dark’, while looking forward with fresh and vibrant sounds for the bands to explore. Beauty Sleep have come a long way from the first G&T they shared together, but that same sense of wonder and discovery remains at the core of the band’s sound.
Inevitably Elles Bailey will be back on the road in 2019, preceded by the powerful new single Medicine Man as an enticing taster of next year’s amazing new album.
